Casio’s G-SHOCK range sees MTGG1000AR-1A join the family

gshock-mtg-collectionIf you are on the lookout for a timepiece that is not only tough as nails, but will also look good when you wear it around your wrist, then the Casio G-SHOCK collection is a name that should be considered by all and sundry right from the get go. This time around, the Japanese company has revealed the Rose Gold MTGG1000AR-1A, being an advanced timepiece that will arrive equipped with GPS Hybrid capabilities and made with G-SHOCK’s legendary resilience.

Forget about machines putting the MTGG1000AR-1A together — it has been specially hand assembled in the Yamagata factory in Japan, where it boasts of the self-adjusting GPS Atomic Solar Hybrid technology that will be able to capture time calibration data using a complementary system for receiving GPS signals and standard terrestrial radio wave signals. Not only that, it will harness the power of the sun thanks to a Tough Solar module that will be protected by a core guard structure that features metal and fine resin for its components.

Other G-SHOCK tools have been adopted, where among them include a Smart Access Crown and a Triple G Resist. You will find that this timepiece arrives with an anti-glare sapphire glass and a Panel Composite Band that is made of solid SS/Fine Resin. The timepiece itself will have a beautiful Rose Gold hue that results in a vintage, yet perfectly finished look.

Some of the key features that showcase its versatility include Airplane Mode, World Time (27TZ, 40 Cities+UTC), LED (Super Illuminator), Daily Alarm, Full Auto Calendar, Stopwatch 924Hr), Countdown Timer (24Hr), Day/Date Display and a case size of 56.0mm. It will not come cheap, however, as the MTGG1000AR-1A will hit the market for $1,900 a pop next month. This is definitely a watch that not only gets the job done, but with aplomb as well, while making you look really, really good.
